At the intersection of beauty and opportunity is Bethany
, a small college of national distinction. Located in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, Bethany offers students a safe, secluded environment that fosters learning and leadership while only a short drive from Pittsburgh, Pa. A contemporary institution based on a solid foundation of the liberal arts, Bethany students enjoy a rich variety of opportunities for learning, in and out of the classroom.
Founded in 1840, Bethany's academic rigor has been creating leaders for more than 170 years. The rich history of the College is well documented in Archives & Special Collections in T.W. Phillips Memorial Library, the main campus library. Featured materials from this collection include yearbooks and catalogs from the late 1800s to the early 2000s.
